Kieron Pollard Made A Heartbreaking Statement After Losing Double Super Overs: Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab locked their horns last night in a thrilling game of cricket, which ended in a crazy manner as KXIP defeated Mumbai Indians after playing 2 super-overs. Both the teams were able to score 176 runs after playing their respective 20 overs.
As the match went towards Super-Over, Jasprit Bumrah bowled brilliantly to restrict Kings XI Punjab to only 5. Mohammed Shami also bowled a magical spell as he too restricted Mumbai Indians to 5 runs before the second Super Over took place.
In the second super-over, Mumbai Indians scored 11 runs against Chris Jordan. Chasing 11 runs, KXIP were able to defeat Mumbai Indians with two balls to spare. Chris Gayle hit a monstrous six bowled by Trent Boult before Mayank Agarwal smashed the third and fourth ball to fours to end the game.

During the post-match presentation, Kieron Pollard came in place of the skipper Rohit Sharma. Talking about the close competition, Kieron said:
“It shows that 1 run and 2 runs are very very crucial in T20 cricket. I am sure it was great for viewership. Kings got the better of us and deserved the two points. Around the 11-12 over, we knew we were a couple of overs behind. Getting 170-odd, that was a good total – above-par on a track that was a on the slower side.”
“With the dimensions, we thought we can defend that. KL again batted beautifully, going down to a Super Over, congratulations to them,” Kieron Pollard said.
Furthermore, Pollard stated that he still believed Mumbai Indians should have won the game as he showered praises about the way his team played. He also gave an update on the skipper Rohit Sharma, who couldn’t come out for the post-match interview. He said:
“It’s a game of cricket, you go out there to do your best, you prepare, there’s a process and the situation dictates what happens. We were on the losing side tonight. We should have won this I believe deep down but these things happen.”
“We have been playing good cricket, even today we played a very good cricket game. it’s a matter of trying to to improve each and every time. There are a couple of areas we need to improve on. We have a four-day break, enough time to reflect. The guys are confident in the dressing room. I was told that he’s (Rohit) not feeling well. We’ll see what happens. He’s a fighter,”
